The Coronavirus pandemic is having an unprecedented impact. Velindre Cancer Centre has measures in place to ensure patient safety, so access to Velindre is limited. Now more than ever we need to raise vital funds to support out patients and families dealing with cancer.

We are extremely grateful for all donations to Velindre, especially in these most difficult of circumstances. We are please to announce that if you are unable to donate online or by the phone, we are now able to accept cash and cheque donations outside of Main Reception at Velindre Cancer Centre

Currently, there are strictly no visitors allowed to enter the hospital building itself. However the Fundraising Team are now able to accept donations in a socially distant and safe manner whilst following government guidelines. The safety of our patients, staff and fundraisers remains our main priority during these difficult times, so if you would like to make a donation by cash or cheque, we ask that you please follow these simple steps.

1. Prior to visiting the hospital please arrange a convenient date and time with a member of the Fundraising Team by calling 02920316211

2. When arriving on site, please park outside the Main Reception and call our office to notify our team that you have arrived. Please do not enter the building. The Fundraising Team will come to collect the donation and will issue you with a receipt. Please note that the exchange must meet all social distancing guidelines.

3. Please ensure that all donations are in a sealed envelope where possible and that your full contact details are included on a note inside the envelope.

Many thanks for your support at this difficult time, and please stay safe.
